A blog that does what it says on the tin - showcasing that corporate chic! Anu, a good vibes tech consultant is the creative behind That Corporate Chic. Anu features a lot of sharp looks. She has a knack of wearing colourful office appropriate outfits making them look feminine and has a great eye for details. Her outfits are always beautifully accessorised with some gorgeous shoes.

The Work Flare

The author and creator of The Work Flare is Odette, a full time working girl and lover of all things fashion. Much like many of the women in this post, she started blogging because she found that there weren’t enough bloggers providing styling advice for corporate outfits.

The more she wrote about styling and how to put outfit ideas together, the more it got her thinking about other things typical working girls might be interested in and so her blog was born. She not only provides office chic styling, she also touches on lifestyle, travel and food.

She also has a YouTube channel, so do make sure you subscribe for your weekly styling fix.

She goes by the name Tendai or Vari but she refuses to choose which name she prefers so I’ll address her as Tendai. Tendai describes herself as a disruptor in stagnant places and she is certainly disrupting the workwear arena with her power dressing. Not only does she show women how to show up suited and booted, she also shares lifestyle and encouragement posts on her Instagram.

Her dream is to make brands for underserved consumers that look just like her and so she is looking to the community to invest in her to support her vision. She has put in a lot of work in starting two projects. Dare I say, both projects will definitely make the working woman look amazing from head to toe – literally! One project, TenSuits is an affordable brand that creates tailored pieces for limitless women and the other is Ruka Hair, a hair company that promotes versatility and produces hair extensions that match the natural curl pattern of black women.

Sounds interesting? Head over to to invest in Tendai's vision.

What Maya Wears

Maya, a northerner now living in London, has definitely brought some class and style to the City. Knowing how to dress for your body type can be a challenge, but Maya has mastered how to dress for her tall and hourglass figure and she constantly shared information about brands that cater for tall women. She describes her style as mixed and an extension of her emotions. Her workwear is inspired by Amal Clooney – classy right! So, you can already expect to be dazzled by her ideas.

Whether you need ideas for the office, to go to the theatre or for drinks, there’s lots of outfits you can draw inspiration from on her Instagram. You will find a combination of flattering, corporate chic looks with a mix of colour and patterns. She has a great eye for detail, so if you want to know how to accessorise your outfits and make them look stylish, then look no further!

Chierika feels that fashion should be as diverse as the world is and allow you to express freely, even when working in a professional environment. She is incredibly big on power shoulders and unique details in garments because that‘s make people take notice. It is this same ambition and desire that lead her to start her own corporate clothing brand, Love Your Look (LYL), described by ELLE as sophisticated elegance. They focus on creating garments that are well made, feminine with bold silhouettes.
